Special Report: Importance of Saving Lives
Speed Limiter Technology
Miami, FL (August 22, 2012) — As part of the Special Edition TV on-going series on public and community safety, a Special Report on Teenage Driving; Preventable Deaths will be discussed. Featured in the report is Highway Guardian, technology designed to help protect and save the lives of young drivers. Look for this Special Report on Sunday, August 26, on the FOX Business Network and Documentary Channel.
In a study released from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in the U.S. among 16–20 year olds. There are 14,000 deaths and 140,000 serious injuries each year due to teen-related accidents. Per mile driven, teen drivers between the ages of 16–19 are four times more likely than older drivers to crash, often resulting in injury and death. “These accidents and deaths are avoidable,” says Dan Mager, president of Highway Guardian. “With a product like Highway Guardian, parents can now have the peace of mind knowing their children will be safer and more responsible drivers.”
Highway Guardian, an aftermarket speed limiter system, is designed for easy installation. It can be placed under the hood of the vehicle, under the dashboard, or even in the glove box. Simple to install, the speed limiter is designed to help reduce deaths and injuries due to auto-related accidents.
About Highway Guardian:
